Mark Junge of Vesrah Suzuki (www.vesrahsuzuki.com, 262-878-5930) built some fast SV1000s that Tray Batey used to win quite a few Suzuki cup races, and knows a few tricks to improve the papa SV. According to Junge, the TL cams alone will not work with the SV; you would have to use the complete TL heads as well, and even the TL pistons for best performance. There are other options to improve your bike’s performance: “The best modification we did was build a ram air box for the SV,” says Junge. “It completely changed the bike.” Unfortunately, few — if any — companies offer a true ram air kit for the SV, so you’d most likely have to cobble something together on your own. You could also look at improving your SV’s chassis: “The TL chassis was weak,” notes Junge, “and the SV really handled well once you installed good shock and fork components."
